During Obama’s rein over 2.5 million illegal immigrants were deported, this number equates to half a million more than during the George W. Bush administration. Obama within many circles was labeled the “Deporter in Chief”
ICE enforcement of this policy has been common place in many cities throughout Obama’s terms and never reported by the Mainstream Media. No video’s, no protests, no outrage and not a dissenting peep from the Democrats.
The current ICE raids, rounding up illegal immigrants who have committed felonies and already had deportation orders are the ones be being targeted by ICE. This in fact is a continuation of the Obama policies, these scheduled raids had little to nothing to do with the Trump administration.
Obama’s policy on deporting illegal immigrants was well noted in numerous speeches throughout his two terms and was never met with a word of opposition.
But now these very same policies, that were enacted by Obama to uphold the rule of law regarding illegal immigration, are being used by the very same democrats who were silent, to bash Trump to make him look like the man ripping little Mexican children off the street clinging to their teddy bears.
The problem with Obama’s illegal immigration policy was really not flawed from the street level. The policy was flawed post deportation. This is why so many of these criminals who were deported under the Obama administration, through ICE lacked success. The reason? These illegal immigrants would simply re-enter through our porous southern border, to carry on their crimes over and over again.
Trumps policies on illegal immigration actually mirror those of Obama’s. The difference? KEEPING THEM OUT! This is where the border wall, increased border patrols and security play a major role. When you look at the billions of dollars spent capturing, processing and deporting illegal criminals over and over again, the cost of that “wall” starts to look far more cost-effective.
We are a nation of laws that must be adhered to. Illegal cannot be justified, especially for so many that are working to enter the country legally.
The hypocrisy and politicizing of the left is absolutely disgraceful, considering they applauded the very same policies on immigration the Obama echoed so many times.
This can serve as a lesson for all those simple-minded fools protesting the policies of Obama, that they now blame Trump for.
